R Planes, or return planes, are G-code commands that specify the Z-Axis return height during canned cycles. The R Plane G-codes remain active for the duration of the canned cycle it is used with. G98 Canned Cycle Initial Point Return moves the Z axis to the height of the Z axis prior to the canned cycle. G99 Canned Cycle R Plane Return moves the Z axis to the height specified by the Rnn.nnnn argument specified with the canned cycle. For additional information, refer to the G and M-code section.
